Growing up, I would spend the summer anxiously awaiting the two weeks that I would spend at sleep-away camp.
I would carefully choose my two camp activities (horseback riding and art) and spend the weeks hanging out with horse, crafting, and enjoying summer. –Amy Image above: CAMP was founded in 2012 by Ginny Branch with fellow creatives Amy Osaba, Erica Loesing, Maria Taylor, and Max Le Blanc and was born from the desire to nurture the talents of designers/artists/photographers/stylists/creatives/makers.
(We love camp so much here at design*sponge that last summer we created an entire newspaper devoted to camp fun.) I love this new trend of summer camps for adults -you can find a summer camp in nearly every part of the country. Based in Atlanta, CAMP teaches crafternoons, day-workshops (natural dyeing with plants and spices, floral arranging/ upholstery 101/ beauty tutorials) and retreats like exploring The Worlds’s Longest Yardsale with our pickin’ pro and 3-day styling + photography workshops.
Started in 2008, in New Hampshire, Squam is a place for exploring creativity. The next event is the Taproot Gathering (September 11 -September 15).
In 2012, the Squam concept traveled to Italy for Squam Italia!
a four-day creative-conference, already took place in California Sierra Mountains at the YMCA Camp at Big Bear, the event seemed awesome enough to mention here.
Each day, Campers attended scheduled classes and then had ‘free time’ where they could practice archery skills, go for a horseback ride, lounge by the pool or nap under a tree.
